BRISTOW — A court hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a woman charged with three counts of first-degree murder which occurred more than 20 years ago.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reported Monday afternoon that suspect Beverly Noe has been offered a deal in the case. OSBI reports that i f Noe accepts the offer, she will enter a guilty plea at that hearing. If Noe does not accept the state’s offer, the case will go to trial in February.

The hearing will start at 10:30 a.m. inside Judge Joe Vassar’s courtroom at the Creek County Courthouse in Bristow.

Noe, 67, is charged with three counts of first degree murder for the deaths of Wendy Camp, Cynthia Britto, and Lisa Kregear more than 20 years ago.

Noe was arrested in March 2014. One of the victims, Camp, 23, was her former daughter-in-law. Cynthia Britto, 6, was Camp’s daughter, and Kregear, 22, was Camp’s sister-in-law.

The bodies were discovered in 2013 after Noe’s brother, Grover Prewitt, led authorities to a property owned by his and Noe’s mother. Prewitt said the bodies were buried in a hole he had dug for a septic tank. Their mother, Ida Prewitt, died in 2011.

Noe has maintained that she dropped the three victims off at a Walmart in Chandler and never saw them again.
